Interlinguicity and Internationality in the Renaissance

Studies of early modern English national identity-formation have increasingly been enriched by the interlaced and non-exclusive identities created and portrayed both in plays and in print. Foreign languages animated the commerce of Europe, and the stage in particular, and posed great risk and reward for the nation, as well as for individual subjects. The space between languages, like the space between nations, was processed simultaneously in a variety of incompatible registers: moral, linguistic, confessional, nationalistic, eschatological and proto-capitalistic. Papers are invited for a panel on this topic at the 2011 conference of the Society for the History of Authorship, Readership and Publishing in Washington, DC, July 14-17, 2011.

Please submit a 250-word abstract by November 15, 2010, along with a CV, to saengerm@southwestern.edu.
